can agree on george bush deserves no credit for that war. you would never know it from yesterday's white house briefing. i mean jay carney was asked about the administration's reactions to the anniversary. he said, we are glad the war is over, we salute our men and women in the military. a reporter from fox says well, if the iraqi people are better off because saddam hussein is no longer there, you have to give george bush some credit. i almost fell off of my chair. jay carney said, of course we give george bush some credit. no we don't. no we don't. everything george bush said about the reason for starting that war turned out to be a big, fat law. no weapons of mass destruction, no nukes, no navy no air force, no justification for war. yes, our men and women in the military did a good job in iraq. but george bush gets no credit for starting that war in the first place. hey, see you right back here tomorrow. have a good one. >> this is "the bill press show." ♪ theme ♪ >> well, it's day three of the hostage negotiation known as he will's park sit
after screwing things up. george bush celebrated by going to his local dennys dressed in a flight suit and ordering the grand slam breakfast. people have signed a petition objecting to comments on that c in my n perceived as sympathetic to the steubenville rapist. there is a number any rapist can call if they feel the stress. phillip roth is 80 and bob dylan's album was released 51 years ago today. if you're angry about the iraq anniversary, we're all 56 now. ♪ theme ♪ >> i'm john fugelsang. ten years ago the invasion of iraq began. we all know what followed, zambrano hussein's regime was top would u.s. troops found themselves in a quagmire as civil war broke out. the u.s. adopted a counter insurgency strategy. whether it really succeeded is till a matter of intense debate. there is no debate that it prepared the ground for a u.s. pullout, allowing president obama's spokesman jay carney to remind reporters today that this president fulfilled his promise to end the war. >> he fill filled that promise in a way that allowed iraq to have the best possible chance to provide for a better
passionate minority. i was there from the start. i can remember marching, urging president bush to stop the war. i can still remember comforting anti-war activists like cindy sheehan. i met her near president bush's texas ranch. at camp casey. named for her son. he was killed in action in the war. from day one, i didn't agree with the invasion of iraq. but i always knew how important it was to support our troops. especially when they came home. the president talked about it in his state of the union. >> we will keep faith with our veterans. investing in world class care, including mental health care. for our wounded warriors. supporting our military families. giving our veterans the benefits and education and job opportunities that they have earned. >> over 1.1 million americans served in iraq, and over 32,000 returned home with severe combat wounds. it's a big reason why 45% of veterans from iraq and afghanistan are seeking disability assistant. it's a staggering number. the wait time for that help is even worse. on average, it's over 300 days for our newest veterans. our veter
. i saw this one, the war in iraq coming from the first days after 9/11. there were those in the bush administration who saw this as their opportunity. they were helped by war hawks on the outside. the "washington post" op-ped page, the "weekly standard," the new republic" were open billboards for the relentless push toward war. establishment media joining in offering uncritical coverage of the administration line. this is not a good statement about the american press. i'd like to believe my generation, especially those who grow up in maturity to the horror of dishonesty of vietnam would have spoken loudly against the war hawks. few, mostly on the left, did. fewer from the middle. still fewer from the right. what's worse than that in those months of late 2001, 2002, and early 2003 to oppose the war when there was time to stop it, worse yet, the question is motivation, to cause trouble for yourself. even when a whole new vocabulary, wmd, homeland, regime change, freedom fries, coalition of the willing, was being confected and infiltrated into our national dialogue. the mainstream media
killed this morning in explosions across iraq. that's exactly ten years after then president bush announced the u.s. invasion. most of today's attacks were car bombings around baghdad, including one near major government offices and foreign embassies. we're still getting information in on that in terms of casualties and injuries. elizabeth, you first, ten years later, where are we? well, it's a very difficult anniversary. no one remembers this fondly at all. the iraqis certainly don't remember this well. they're not marking this anniversary at all. i also think that the war changed fundamentally the way the united states thinks about war. look at how reluctant the president is right now to intervene in syria in a serious way. look at how reluctant the pentagon was to go to war to intervene in libya. look at how long the afghanistan wars lasted because of what happened in iraq. we're in a very sober place right now. also, we have to remember, nearly 5,000 american men and women killed in uniform killed as a result of this war. i should also -- i should also tell you, i am at this p
jerry saltz will analyze the bush brush. >>> we begin tonight with two men on opposite sides of gun safety reform. both claiming they represent the will of the people. new york city mayor michael bloomberg expressed confidence on "meet the press" that meaningful reform is on the horizon. >> i am cautiously optimistic. i think, when you have an issue where 90% of the public, 80% of nra members, even, say that they think we should have reasonable checks before people are allowed to buy guns, they all support the second amendment, as i do. but there are an awful lot of people that think that this is one of the great issues of our times. we have to stop -- >> yet nra executive vice president, wayne lapierre, is convinced that his organization is looking out for america's best interests, while bravely fighting off a challenge from the nanny state and its nanny mayor. >> he's going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people. and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restau
w. bush is busy in his retirement painting lots of pictures of puppy dogs. we'll show you his brand new masterpieces and get a check of your forecast when "way too early" comes right back. >> i can say this moment, what other nations will not go to the summer olympics in moscow. ours will not go. [ female announcer ] going to sleep may be easy, but when you wake up in the middle of the night it can be frustrating. it's hard to turn off and go back to sleep. intermezzo is the first and only prescription sleep aid approved for use as needed in the middle of the night when you can't get back to sleep. it's an effective sleep medicine you don't take before bedtime. take it in bed only when you need it and have at least four hours left for sleep. do not take intermezzo if you have had an allergic reaction to drugs containing zolpidem, such as ambien. allergic reactions such as shortness of breath or swelling of your tongue or throat may occur and may be fatal. intermezzo should not be taken if you have taken another sleep medicine at bedtime or in the middle of the night or drank alcohol
today in president bush's book "decision points" he says he wished he had done immigration before social security, because he thinks there would have been bipartisan support for it before he tried. but it failed mostly because harry reid called a cloture vote. over, some of the issues take a long time to marinate. that that as people thought it through, i think they realize it's not having a good comprehensive immigration policy is hurting us economically and it's not the right thing to do. it's time to solve it. i admire everyone for coming to the table. but i want to make a point. what rand paul is saying is contrast to gang of eight. his idea is security first, legalization and then citizenship. gang of eight put forward legalization, security and then citizenship. that seems like you could find a compromise, but that is a big leap between security and legalization piece and flipping them. >> andrea: what do you think, eric? >> eric: rand paul opened up a can of whoop-ass on the hill and they were flooded with calls say dog you care to weigh in on rand paul's idea? he threw people for
retroactively. and george bush and dick cheney and condoleezza rice are still around. in terms of how we get right with this as a country, the accountability can't just be personal about the decision makers. it has to be about telling the story honestly about what happened so that they, like nixon, don't get away with it in the long run the way they got away with it in the short run, so we tell the story correctly and honestly, so it's not dismissed as a conspiracy theory by generations hence by americans who can't believe something this evil would happen in our country. it did. we need to teach it that way and learn it that way if we want to have any hope of it not happening again. in american politics there were plenty of democrats who went with the iraq war ten years ago, who believed it, and made it more convincing by virtue of their democratic endorsement. on the democratic side that at least as since become a source of shame. it's a strike against you in democratic politics. it's part of the reason we have a president named president obama who was not part of that mess and not hillary
couple of years? especially as you have folks like jeb bush and chris christie. trying to move the country to more moderate and progressive in the lower-case "p" sense of the word. >> in covering ron paul, who of course rand paul is going to inherit the energy and enthusiasm from ron paul, you saw the biggest crowds, the most diverse crowds and the youngest crowds. that's what rand paul is going to capitalize on. should he run and it looks like he will run. i think over the last months and weeks you've seen obviously a split between the establishment and the tea party folks. rubio can't decide which one he is. rand paul, however, is very, i think solid and comfortable with his brand and who he is. it's part of ron paul, he's modified a little bit in terms of foreign affairs and international affairs. but i think he is a comer and folks in the republican party i talk to really like him. they think he's the person who can really intellectualize a tea party in the way that ron paul couldn't. he was a little meandering on the stump. they like what they see in terms of rand paul. an
.s. launched a war in iraq. here's how george w. bush broke the news on march 19th, 2003. >> my fellow citizens, at this hour, american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq and free its people and defend the world from grave danger. >> within a month, baghdad had fallen, but the war dragged on. casualties spike in subsequent years and in early 2006, the bombing of a mosque led to a wave of sectarian violence. president obama vowed an exit strategy to fulfill a promise and ended the mission before christmas, 2011. richard engle was there. >> after invasion, a civil war and a surge and a training mission, for the first time, u.s. military command no longer has a presence here in iraq. this is now a sovereign nation. >> richard spent eight years in iraq. he is in another key part of the region in israel. he is waiting for president obama who arrives in jerusalem tomorrow morning. good morning. >> good to be with you. >> i want to ask you, we sit here ten years later and you spent a tremendous amount of time in that part of the world. what is our standi
was wrong. he was wrong then and now. of course deficits matter, but any one of you who supported the bush plans has no right to speak. i helped bill clinton balance the budget and build a surplus. why? because we had good economic times. in good economic times, you pay down the deficit, but reagan and bush did not, and in bad you have to stimulate in the near term, as thank god president obama is doing. we democrats will balance the budget once again. >> paul, which is more important to america's pursuit of happiness -- which is more dangerous, excuse me, than a 357 magnum -- >> in my home you would find 17 guns and no cans of soda pop. i have the right wing position on the giant drink soda thing. i do not like the idea, and i think bloomberg is a fine man, but i do not like government telling us what size to buy today. this one, i am with tucker and most of you. i have the right wing position on gun safety. i have the same position as ronald reagan, who was for a waiting period before you buy a gun. i have the same position as the president of the nra before he flip-flopped in the last f
anniversary of the invasion of iraq. a war that was ordered by president george w. bush, a war that the current president has said should never have been authorized. but in marking the anniversary, the president issued this statement. "we honor the memory of the nearly 4,500 americans who made the ultimate sacrifice to give the iraqi people an opportunity to forge their own future after many years of hardship." for the latest, let's go to nbc's kristen welker live for us at the white house. senators lindsey graham and john mccain have just issued a statement warning that if the use of chemical weapons is verified, then the united states must take immediate action. i have to ask you, kristen, how is the white house responding to these disturbing reports out of syria? >> reporter: well, they are quite concerned about the reports out of syria, martin, and i have to tell you, there are still a lot of question marks. the white house making the point that they are looking into the allegations that chemical weapons were used in syria. as you pointed out, the government is pointing fin
supported george w. bush's war on terror hatesevision -- taliban musharraf because he supported george w. bush's war on terror. police are investigating his role in the death of two political opponents, including the former prime minister. it is alleged musharraf did not do enough to prevent her assassination. some pakistanis are nostalgic for musharraf. he is hoping nostalgic will help them in the poll. he is planning to fight elections in may. >> in a moment, the presidents of germany and italy remember a wartime atrocity that was ignored for decades. first, a look at some other stories in brief. u.s. secretary of state john kerry has traveled to baghdad on an unannounced visit that he talks with the premised her. a minister. washington wants baghdad to .top flights the steering coalition refusing to accept the resignation of its leader. ahmed moaz al-khatib stepped down as head of syria's biggest opposition group, saying he felt his hands were tied in the role. ahmed moaz al-khatib led the coalition since september. police say there is no indication of foul play in the death of boris
george w. bush. that is the scary thing. we need to help israel establish a second most strategic alliance with egypt. obama does not have the ability. >> sean: jordan may not be far behind and syria is going the muslim brotherhood. >> he was most tossed out president in american-israel relations and before the election and same is true today. he didn't set the reset button on this trip. it was embarrassing and refused to go to the parliament to address the officials. it's self-styled and hand picked group of students and young people and he told them to ignore their elected representatives that somehow risk a verse and their parents who have some sort to overcome the legacy of mistrust. to tell holocaust descendants there is no healthy reason for skepticism is embarrassing and wrong. >> sean: ryan. >> let me give you an idea how little the current administration knows about the muslim brotherhood. they are celebrating the fact that the syrian rebels chose as the interim prime minister as an american, but this guy is tied to the u.s. muslim brotherhood. and u.s. ambassador for syr
. bush would not meet with arafat in the white house because he knew how that devastated friends and encouraged our enemies. you remember even in the gulags in the soviet union when reagan said evil empire about soviet union, they applauded. it gave them strength. it helped themsh forward. this president doesn't get it. he was in the gulag and when they found out a president used those two words, it made incredible encouragement. >> sean: same speech about alexander s., and ambassador bolton, good to see you. king of jordan said we're making a big mistake by supporting the muslim brotherhood. before i ask you a question. i want to take it back to barack obama's apology tour and ask you if this was effective. let's roll that tape. >> america like every other nation has made mistakes and has it's flaws. in america there is a failure to appreciate europe's leading role in the world. instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times when america has shown arrogance and been dismissive even derisive. 9/11 was an
, that it was dysfunctional, a reprisal of liberals and what they have seen as excessive conservativism in the bush era and back and forth, and a dysfunctional agency. so there are other people who are less controversial and as i say would share mr. perez's views. and picking perez is sort of like what they did with chuck hagel. they could have found someone who shared chuck hagel's point ever view who wouldn't have been as controversial as mr. hagel. >> megyn: and the ig's report found mr. perez, that he misled investigators on the new black panther case that it was not intentional, that he should have done his homework, but not that he knowingly lied. that was the ig conclusion. however, they did back up the allegation that there is a racial hostility when it comes to enforces the civil rights laws equally where the defendant in the case is black and the victim in the case is white, that there's a racial hostility within the doj when it comes to those cases and that in fact that exists under mr. perez's civil rights division, as it did prior in the bush administration. is it not less controversial th
, he would then face his democratic challenger, elizabeth colbert bush. she is the sister of political sat at that rift, stephen coal barrett. that would be an interesting race. it would take over the seat left vacant by tim scott, who was appointed to the u.s. senate. watch that south carolina race. >>> all right. back to the drawing board now in the cyprus after lawmakers reject a wildly unpopular plan to raid people's personal bank accounts. you can imagine why that didn't go over too well as part of their effort to secure a bailout from the eurozone and the imf without their help the tiny island's bank sector would most certainly collapse. that could potentially threaten other national economies. these things are often domino effects as you know. greg palkot is live in london. what is the latest on this deal, greg. >> reporter: you're right, martha. people are scrambling blink to prevent another way for cyprus to go bankrupt and dragging rest of europe down with it. in the cypriot parliament, not a single member of parliament voted in favor of that plan. this plan could see as much
in may of 2003 when president george w. bush announced the end of major combat operations in iraq while aboard the u.s.s. "abraham lincoln." >> in the battle of iraq, the united states and our allies have prevailed. >> reporter: but it would be more than eight years before the last u.s. military convoys rolled out of iraq. >> i'm happy! i'm happy to be out of iraq. >> reporter: nearly 4,500 americans were killed during the war that spanned close to nine years. along with more than 100,000 iraqis. some of the conflicts' bloodiest battles were fought in fallujah when u.s. forces faced off against insurgents and four u.s. contractors were attacked. their charred bodies were dragged through the streets. in december, 2003, saddam hussein was captured by u.s. troops who found him hiding in an underground hole. he would be tried by an iraqi tribunal and found guilty of crimes against humanity and was executed in december, 2006. was what wasn't found in iraq were active weapons of mass destructions or w.m.d.s, something many in the bush administration had stated saddam hussein had at his dispos

, and president george w. bush only visited during his final months in office. the president, however, is dogged by the perception that he's pulled toward the government of america's strongest ally in the middle east and by the criticism that his outreach to improve relations with the muslim world has been at israel's expense. during an interview on friday with me for "press pass," israel's ambassador to the u.s. sought to downplay any rift. >> there is a u.s./israel relationship which is deep, which is unbreakable, and that's a message of assurance to the people of israel at a very turbulent time in our region and a message to the people of the middle east. >> mr. obama will visit the grave site of theodore hertz el, the father of modern zionism, meant to send a strong signal to the region that this president stands behind israel as its right to exist as jewish state. also on the agenda, a visit to the holocaust memorial and the church of the nativity in bethlehem, a revered site for christians. stay with nbc news for comprehensive coverage of the president's trip starting wednesday. >>> coming
and launch the effort far sooner than either bill clinton or george w. bush did in their administrations. then it fell flat quickly. what was interesting to hear what the president said when he arrived formally as to why he made this his first trip of his second term. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> and he's going to be going to ramallah meeting with the palestinian authority there, the head there, abbas in the west bank. he's meeting with jord ab's king abdullah on this trip with mubarak not in egypt anymore, the single most important arab leader in the peace process if something happens. now president perez, he spoke about the peace process after the president spoke. >> we long to see an end to the conflict with the palestinians, to see the palestinians enjoying fraed freedom and prosperity in their own state. we extend o
to me. >> and governor, how have nevada politics george w. bush won the state twice. now president obama has won state twice. we've also seen huge shift in the latino demographics going from 20% in 2000 to 27% in 2010. have the politics there really shifted? >> it shifted a lot over the years. president clinton, of course, won the state also. perhaps that's why he wrote the forward to my book. because i ran that campaign, but nevada has historically been one that has a combination of a democratic and republican leadership in various offices. the demographics in las vegas have changed dramatically. we have many more hispanics moving into the community. much more democratic registration. that is a reason i think president obama has carried nevada the last two elections as opposed to previously when george w. bush did. >> so do you see nevada in the future becoming more and more blue, going more and more blue with the explosion of hispanics and latinos that will be there? or do you think it's going to be a swing state and go back and forth? >> i think we're always going to be in play. i thi
. >> when i was covering the white house and karl was in it with george w. bush, it was a republican party that was looking to that tomorrow and reaching out, winning 40% of the hispanic vote. i remember, there was an event in the east room where president george w. bush, said, on thomas jefferson's birthday, i'm happy and proud to welcome both sides of the jefferson family. the republicans couldn't get away with that today -- >> i disagree. it was a gracious moment. >> i totally agree. >> but we're starting to see a change this week. something happened this week that suggested an opening up to 71% of latinos. you saw rand paul. really break down on immigration. a lot of people saw the speech that he gave, this could be the signal that immigration reform passes this year. >> we're not going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants. if you wish to live and work in america, then we'll find a place for you. in order to bring conservatives to this cause, those must understand that a real solution must ensure that our borders are secure. >> karl, you didn't hear that during the republican primar

colleagues that when president george w. bush's tax cut was passed in 2001, it was defended on the grounds that it was only going to take a small part of the projected surplus as that we were going to have for the next ten years. that was -- that's what was said. well, as we now know, those surpluses didn't materialize. we had the tax cuts, we had two unpaid-for wars that completely wiped out the expected surpluses, and yet we kept those big tax cuts going. and to created big deficits. and then the onslaught of the great recession in 2008 pushed our deficits even higher. and today, today only one-eighth of the revenues lost by the bush tax cuts have been restored. one-eighth. one-eighth. yet many of the republicans keep repeating their mantra that we only have a spending problem, only a spending problem, not a revenue problem. this is demonstrably not the case. now, we go back in time when i was here when president reagan pushed through some tax cuts when he came in as president, but i would say to his credit, he realized they went too far so he reversed course and supported two income tax
